From Publishers Weekly:

"Deep down inside I am a romantic," confesses Kasparov, the brash, supremely confident Soviet grand master who in 1985, at age 22, defeated fellow countryman Anatoly Karpov to become the youngest-ever world chess champion. In this articulate, witty, outspoken autobiography, written with Trelford, an editor of the British Observer , Kasparov recalls his Jewish-Armenian family background, his father's death when he was seven and his precocious entry into the tournament world. Focusing on key matches in a narrative chock-full of chess anecdotes and game analyses, the book highlights the grand master's running feud with a bureaucratic "chess mafia" and his gutsy attempt to democratize the sport as it is played in the Soviet Union. This sometimes rancorous tell-all offers a behind-the-scenes look at the intrigue and politics of top-level competition. Photos.

From Library Journal:

The engaging Russian who became world chess champion at age 22 in 1985 has coauthored (with the editor of Britain's The Observer ) an honest and interesting account of his competitive life. He devotes two brief chapters to his childhood, when his special talent for chess was recognized, but the rest details the challenges--intellectual and psychological--of his major tournaments. His descriptions of other master players, particularly his long-time rivals Florencio Campomanes and Anatoly Karpov, are fascinating. Equally engrossing are accounts of his clashes with the International Chess Federation, whose political squabblings have stalled many high-level games. Recommended.
